As the author of Dining In and the soon-to-be-published Nothing Fancy, Alison Roman is the queen of recipes that are both delicious and designed for maximum ease with fewer steps than you think, a philosophy that applies to all four seasons. Knowing that, Francis Lam wanted to know what sort of things she likes to cook and eat during the hot months of summer, when the last thing you want is to be holed up in a warm kitchen. Turns out she's all about grilling, preparing no-cook meals, and using simple ingredients for fresh and seasonal flavors. Listen to their conversation using the audio play above and then try her grilling recipe for Seared Shortribs with Quick Kimchi and Sesame Salt.
